    Just curious to know if any of you lovely pregnant ladies out there are having a feeling of being warm. Every now and then my body starts feeling warm, mainly in my hands chest and face, kinda like sunburnt. It's kind of like my face is flushed...wierd feeling. I felt this at the begining of my pregnancy and now im 27 weeks and feeling it again. Feels like I'm burning up!! Im assuming it's the raging hormones and extra blood circulating. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I can relate! I was just about to come on and ask the same question. It's not even hot out today, I have every window open in the house, a tank top on, and the fan going full speed but still feels like I'm going to melt. I can actually feel the heat coming off of my body! Must be those crazy hormones! I dont feel sunburnt, just hot hot hot!!

    OMG! I am 'hot' all the time! I've even been waking up in the middle of the night with my shirt up, over my belly!

    I gave up blankets a long time ago and am just down to a jersey cotton sheet... that I haven't used in about two weeks.

    I almost want to laugh when I wake up for my midnight pee breaks because my shirt is pulled way up to right under my boobs and my belly is just hanging out... it's gotta be because I'm getting hot while I'm sleeping!

    I find that I'm complaining about the heat and humidity soooooo much more than normal. A few people have even commented on it - like I'm the token 'hot pregnant lady'.

    The thought of wearing a shirt with sleeves that go past my sholders is unbearable!!!
